Just like fashion, fads in food come and go. A few years ago, there was a rumour that cabbage soup was trending (that would have been like the 90s for fashion). Depending on where you live, the list varies. Each region has got its own quirky ideas and favourites. And after analysing quite a few of these lists, we’ve put together our own list – one that we would love to follow!
Home cooked food, home grown veggies, home brewed anything – if it carries the prefix, ‘home’, we love it! You just can’t deny the simple goodness of anything made at home. It is fresh, full of flavour, made with lots of care and love – and is definitely more nutritious than packaged food. We are particularly in love with the idea of home grown veggies. It isn’t very hard. You’ll need a few pots of good soil, seeds, some patience and TLC, and voila – you’ve got yourself a kitchen garden. Basic herbs, chilli, tomatoes, leafy veggies, ginger, garlic are all quite easy to grow.
As Indians we are no strangers to street food. But this new avatar of street food is simply inspired and elevated. You can find food trucks dishing up a range of cuisines – from French crepes and sandwiches to gourmet handcrafted burgers.
These are more like meal boxes. They are packed with fresh ingredients and your daily does of nutrition. An easy-to-follow recipe comes along with them and you can whip up a home cooked meal in no time.
It’s a crime to waste good food. With culinary Gods like Jamie Oliver teaching you how to make optimal use of food and how to stow away leftovers, you can learn to cook and eat more responsibly.
Food in your cocktails might sound a bit strange, but these cocktails have been taking the culinary world by storm for some time now. They are imaginative, innovative and infused with dramatic new flavours. They also push the bounds in terms of textures.
Who doesn’t love a long, lazy lunch? But drinking in the afternoon may not always be such a great idea. Unless you have a ’session cocktail’. These are lower on alcohol content and pair great with bar nibbles.
This is the drink you need when you want to drink, but not something too alcoholy. Or when there’s an impromptu party at home, and your wine stash is running low. Or when you just don’t want to invest in way too much wine for a party.
There are days when you load up on salads and run mini marathons. And then, there are days when you decide to cheat with a box full of cupcakes. Today, is one of such days for us. We paired up a few popular favourites with some of our wines. And the results were simply stupendous!
Summers are synonymous with a quintessential quencher – the lemony lime lemonade. A chilled glass of this sweet citrusy drink can lift your spirits instantly. As the mercury rises, most Indian households make big pitchers of this miracle drink and leave it in the fridge for the whole family to sip on.
It’s just after lunch. Your body craves for its shot of caffeine. But your brain screams in protest, “Have you lost your mind? It’s so hot!” Your body responds coolly, “Then let’s get a glass of wine.” Your brain mulls over this, “Wine? Really? I’m not very sure.” Well, dear brain, don’t overthink this.
The red-hot heat of summers makes us crave for something fresh, light and cool. Our instinct is to reach out for a big bowl of crisp salad. And of course, a glass of wine. Whether you’re having the salad for starters or for mains, pairing it with the right wine makes the greens pop alive, … Continue reading Wine And Salad Pairing Ideas

We take our wine seriously. Very, very seriously. In fact, we’d consider it a great sacrilege if one did not follow the basic tenets of wine consumption. What are these? Well, they are rules of etiquette, consumption and indulgence.
Slushies are all the rage this season. And with the temperatures soaring (it’s only March), who wouldn’t love a glass of chilled (or even frozen) yumminess? So as part of our Women’s Day celebration, the Pink Week, we’ve created a slushie with our deliciously light rosé wine, Big Banyan Rosa Rossa.
